I got my Corcorans today and I'm PISSED. The boot they sent me is smaller than they are labeled and apparently, Wide width Corcoran boots are narrower than normal width! I should have gone to Army Surplus and grabbed the largest size boot available

THREAD NECROMANCY!!!

I bought a pair of Ropers



I'm going to get a pair of cheap Jungle Boots for working and I'm going to use the Bates as camp boots because they stand up to mud better than jungle boots

I wear size 13 Brahma sneakers. They're work sneakers, have steel toes, are water-proof, shock proof, skid proof, and are only $30. And they look like regular sneakers so I can remain casual.

I replaced the issue shit boot, its heel structurestarts falling apart and digging into your heel. It also didnt feel comfortable. I bought some SWAT brand boots at a surplus store with the zip up side so you dont need to tie them, theyre confortable and sturdy. Not expensive either.

Seems like I had a pair of side-zip boots under that name. The zipper on one of them broke off two months after I got them.

I don't wear sneakers. For some reason I haven't been able to find a comfortable pair since I was 11

They were leather... Though I assume you mean regular lace-up boots instead of tacticool side-zips.

At any rate, I'm running (no pun intended) a pair of 5.11 Tactical side-zip ATACs now and they're as durable as an AK.
